picture-14A new year brings new tidings for everyone—some good, some bad, some great. In the world of skating, it’s that line of springtime things for us to look at and marvel over, which also come along. And, so it goes for Crailtap. They’ve released their 19th Wallride Catalog, with an always smart-aleck intro from part owner Megan Baltimore about all the new lessons she’s learned about the skill of keeping your board on your feet, the difference between a ramp and a bowl, how some people have better styles than others and what a game of S.K.A.T.E. is. Take a look at their newest product from Girl, Chocolate and Royal—the Vince Capaldi board graphic and the one-offs, which are probably a response to fans’ calls to make Hershel’s Greatest Misses reality. Too funny from the skater-owned and operated Crail family.

The ripper from Fontana has been officially welcomed to Lakai. Check the requisite welcome video at the Lakai site and check back soon for its complete Spring 2010 product line.

Now in its fourth year, the annual DVS Copenhagen Pro has evolved into Europe’s premiere skateboarding contest event. Each year, hundreds of top professional skateboarders from around the world descend on Scandinavia’s crown jewel city of Copenhagen. The skaters participate not only in an amazing and professionally executed pro contest, but also take part in a family-style party that rages throughout the contest’s three day schedule.
CPH 2010 is slated to be the biggest contest to date. With events including a pre-contest festival featuring live art shows, live music acts, BBQs, late night parties, and plenty of open skate jams and demos at Copenhagen’s newly built concrete skatepark.

TransWorld SKATEboarding is proud to present its 20th video, And Now. Produced in eight short months, And Now was filmed in Australia, China, Spain, South America Hawaii, Arizona, New York, Texas, Washington, Oregon, Georgia and California.
And Now features the talents of six young rising stars; the handrail madness of David Gravette, the lazy style of Nick Trapasso, the bionic pop of Matt Miller, the consistent textbook skating of Sean Malto, the striped pants and jaw dropping moves of Richie Jackson, and the smooth buttery style of Kenny Hoyle. Produced, edited and directed by Jon Holland and Chris Ray, this is one skate film that cannot be missed!
